Life along the Mekong River is fascinating. For three weeks, I traveled from Siem Reap, Cambodia to My Tho, Vietnam aboard The Jahan with National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions. Each day, I visited small local villages and communities to learn about the region's storied past, explore the vast landscape and experience unique cultural aspects. A few highlights include - riding through the countryside in an ox cart, learning how to make rice paper and rattan mats, buying local fish and produce from a floating market and sampling the wondrous amounts of fresh food. A few images chronicling the journey are below.
Washingtonian commissioned me to make skyline images of Washington, D.C. for a feature titled, "Our Favorite Places." I obtained access to a unique high vantage point and made this panorama by stitching together 15 vertical images. At 300 DPI, the image could be printed at over 33 feet in length.

Every year, thousands of U.S. veterans visit Washington, D.C. to experience the memorials dedicated their sacrifice and service. The veterans are part of Honor Flight Network, a non-profit organization that was established to help bring vets to the nation's capital. Honor Flight pays for travel costs and logistical support on the ground. To enhance the veterans' visit, re-enactors from Allied Airmen's Preservation Society volunteer throughout the year and welcome the vets with open arms and sometimes a big smooch.

This fall, I worked aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion, where I taught passengers photography, photo editing and storytelling. Our journey was through Alaska's Inside Passage and along the coast of British Columbia. Each day, we would search for wildlife, learn about natural history and experience unique cultural events. Several images from the expedition with National Geographic and Lindblad are below.
Periodically throughout the year, I teach photography aboard the Lindblad and National Geographic Expeditions vessels. This year, I had the privilege of leading a group throughout Cambodia and Vietnam. We started in Siem Reap, then cruised along the Mekong River to Vietnam and ended our voyage in Ho Chi Minh City. A few images from the expedition are below.
